Over the past week, warmer temperatures in Bandung have tended to increase. On October 2, 2023, the maximum temperature was recorded at 33.1 degrees Celsius.

The definition of extreme air temperature, according to BMKG, is a condition of air temperature reaching three degrees Celsius or more above the local normal value. “As for the issue of rising temperatures, of course there is still the possibility of rising, depending on natural and anthropogenic factors,” Yan said.

According to him, the main factor in the increase in extreme temperatures is the lack of cloud cover which usually occurs at the height of the dry season. As a result, direct sunlight hits the Earth’s surface without the process of reflection and absorption by clouds in the atmosphere.


Another factor, Yan said, is related to the continuing El Nino and positive IOD that makes cloud cover increasingly minimal in the atmosphere. “In addition to the climate change factor, global trends also show that there is an increase in temperatures in various parts of the world due to climate change,” she said.
